The Parenting Files: First Day of Kindergarten

I wasn't the only parent with a few tears in my eyes as I said goodbye to my Big Girl this morning.

Sigh. Has it really been five years since I brought a wriggling, crying baby girl home for the first time? Has it been two years since I dropped her off for her first day of preschool and she clung to my leg and cried? Today she didn't even look up when I waved goodbye. Sniff. I'm so proud, sad, happy....

Aaagh, what a big day! I can't imagine how that feels. :) I remember my own first day, I told my mother it was okay for her to go home. She tells me now that she went home and cried. ;)
